Mmmmm...Phyllo!!!


I love phyllo pastry and I love, love, love Brie! Who am I kidding? I love cheese in general! One of my favourite things in the world is warm Brie with red pepper jelly slathered on stone-milled sesame seed multi-grain crackers! Whew! That was a mouthful!

Warm Brie Wrapped in Phyllo with Red Pepper Jelly!

Ingredients:
  • 1 x Brie round
  • Red Pepper Jelly (I always get mine made by our neighbours who have a "pick-your own"fruit and veggie farm)
  • 4 x sheets of phyllo pastry, thawed
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
Directions:
  1. Lay out a sheet of phyllo (one at a time) and brush with melted butter. Place another sheet on top and repeat until you have 4 layers.
  2. Slice the Brie in half horizontally. Spread a thick layer of red pepper jelly on the bottom half of the Brie. Place the top half back on the bottom and put the Brie in the centre of the phyllo.
  3. Bring opposite corners of the phyllo together and twist all four corners to form the shape of a flower in the centre of the Brie. Brush the top with butter and place in a pie plate.
  4. Bake at 350 for 10 – 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
  5. Top with MORE red pepper jelly!! Serve with stone-milled sesame seed multi-grain crackers or sliced baguette. Enjoy!

I'll jump on a plane for that! Looks so yummy.
I was introduced to the joys of Red Pepper Jelly last year while visiting my brother and SIL in Victoria. We'd get it at the Community Market (sorta like a weekly craft fair/farmer's market/Tasty Food vender deal). We'd get the Extra Extra Hot Jelly and eat it with seedy crackers and cheve cheese.
YUM!

I plan on making Red Pepper Jelly this year. Guess I should get those plants going. I just realized its already March and no garden plans have happened.

Mmmmmm...I think I'm going to make me some warm Brie wrapped in phyllo now. *drool*

Yeah! Do make some red pepper jelly and let me know how it turns out! Good thing I STILL haven't mailed out that parcel to you yet. I'm going to put a bottle of red pepper jelly in there for you. I hope you don't mind, but I'm putting some stuff in the box for J and Maya too. Could you please pass it on to them? THANKS!

Crap that sounds good. Doesn't help that I'm HUNGRY, and dinner is about an hour away. Sigh.

I have a recipe that is pretty yummy that I seem to remember including brie and philo dough...put the philo in muffin tins, put in a bit of brie and some dried cranberries, and gosh, there's something else. I'm so lame that I can't remember. If Cherry comes back, or Autumn's Mom pops by, I'll bet they know. :)

J:
Mmmmmmmmm...I love anything with cranberry! Brie and cranberry sounds deeeelish! I like the idea of putting the phyllo in little muffin tins! Perfect presentation and individual sized portions! Mehhh...I'd probably eat the entire wheel of Brie if I could though! LOL!

Word Verification: storkeys!

Canine:
Great minds think alike!! ;) I think the puff pastry would actually be BETTER than the phyllo! I love that the puff pastry won't be as flaky/fragile as the phyllo. Good call!

Off the check out that GQ cover! I'll have to take a photo of Little One's onesie with the "Team Edward" on it! I thought of you when I ironed on the sticker! ;p

DINA!!!
I WISH we were closer because I would TOTALLY feast on a wheel of warm brie with you! ;p Actually, my SIL and one of the neighbours is having a post-baby baby shower on the Island for me. Kinda makes me miss you girls. I remember you and Fancy (and Sam) coming to my bridal shower three years ago! I MISS YOUUUUUUUU!!!
